Afternoon!

Telkom recently launched the new Dynamic Spectrum Management Software or DSMS that monitors ADSL users physical ADSL lines in real-time, and automatically adjusts the actual ADSL line sync to ensure that the User has the best possible experience on this ADSL connection.

This basically means that although your ADSL line has been automatically set to sync at 8Mbps instead 10Mbps, with the sync slightly lower the attenuation and SNR will be greatly improved ensuring that your connection runs more reliably and at a consistently better speed than at the higher sync.

The DSMS will continue to monitor your ADSL line readings, and if certain thresholds are met, it will then proceed to readjust the sync higher to ensure you get the best possible experience.
